The Encyclopedia of North American Indians - Vol. 1


In contrast to young-adult literature that represents Native American culture as a thing of the past, or lumps Native cultures into a single ethnic group, or portrays romantic images of Indians offering turkey and corn to early settlers<-->this 11-volume set (for upper elementary level students and above) explores the ways in which Native people participate in a culturally diverse North America even as they continue to uphold their various traditions and maintain their identity as members of specific nations and tribes. The 1,700 entries fall into several thematic groups: history and culture; images of Native Americans within the culture-at-large; life in multicultural America; Indian country throughout the Americas; and non-Indian people and events viewed from a Native perspective. Includes 1,400 color illustrations. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
